As we have already been in the anarchy department (see the anarchy symbol in the last post), I can not deny you this grafitto. It aks for breaking rules and can be found near the Vienna University of Economics and Business, which also has a high Bobo density.
Found this grafitto in the 7th district of Vienna, which is the home base and living room of the Viennese ‘Bourgeois and Bohemians’ (Bobos). Other favourite hang outs are the local food and flea market ‘Naschmarkt’ and the neighbouring cafés and cinemas.
Wanna find out if your are a ‘Bobo’? Check out this checklist by the Guardian.
If you want to educate yourself about the ‘Bobos’ you should not miss this book by David Brooks: Bobos In Paradise – The New Upper Class And How They Got There

Obviously life is beautiful in Plender street (Camden/London).
Probably due to the fact that the ‘Lisboa Patisserie’ (number 4) is located here. The owners offer fab pastis de nata (Portugese custard tarts) and prepare gorgeous (and reasonably priced) birthday cakes.
